The 9 to 12 bowling league is hosting its 23rd annual fundraiser, "Bowl for Their Future," a fun-raiser for Youth Outlook Sat., March 31, at River Rand bowling alley in Des Plaines, 6-10 p.m.

There will be door prizes, raffle prizes, food and a bunch of fun games. Organizers stated: "Without your generous donation and participation we cannot make this night a blast and meet our biggest goal yet of $10,000 or more. We would love to pack the house and reach our biggest financial goal to date!"

The 9 to 12 Bowling League — Rainbowlers was started in 1979 and is the longest running LGBTQ suburban bowling league in the Chicagoland area. Their leagues meet monthly from October until May from 9 p.m.-midnight, hence the league name.

For the past 22 years the 9 to 12 bowling league has assisted nonprofits like HIVCO and Vital Bridges with a fun night of bowling and fundraising. This year they have selected Youth Outlook.

Youth Outlook is solely dedicated to the support of LGBTQ+ youth. They work in six counties in the Chicago suburbs, offering drop-in centers for youth, parent support and community education. Youth Outlook began in 1996 when a group of community members in DuPage County met to discuss their concerns over the lack of area resources for LGBTQ+ youth. Since that time, Youth Outlook ( formerly Questioning Youth Center ) has been committed to providing a safe, supportive, and respectful environment for adolescents, whether they identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or questioning ( LGBTQ+ ). See www.youth-outlook.org .

Ticket can be purchased here: www.9to12bowling.com, or by going to bowlfortheirfuture.bpt.me . Sponsors or those with raffle prizes should email info@9to12bowling.com .
